Big Screen Competition

In the Big Screen Competition, the audience jury selects one IFFR film that not only deserves a place on a big screen in Dutch film theaters, but also on our television at home. VPRO will give the winning film the opportunity to broadcast on NPO2.

The VPRO Big Screen Award is the result of years of collaboration between IFFR and VPRO. The films from the Big Screen Competition will be presented to an audience jury composed by five film lovers. The winning film will be shown in film houses and on television all around the Netherlands. In addition, the winner of the VPRO Big Screen Award wins a cash prize of €30,000, half of which goes to the distributor who decides to buy the film.
